outside on my balcony table i ve got about 40 seedling pots,mexivan hats,cypress vines,dianthus,daisies,morning glories etc...

well tonite is if i recall correctly the first night with a temperature of under 60 f. it s about 57 -58, i want to know if my poor little seedlings will freeze and at which temperature is it better to put them inside,to already get them indoors for the winter,i don t know since they re so little.

on the other hand i ve got plenty of others in my garden but those ones are adults ,shoul i get them inside now or wait till it s a bit more cold,i don t know it seems early to transplant them all from the garden into pots to put in the garage for winter...please help...thankx a lot!!

some of those the morning glory cypress vine.will bloom till frost then be done and just collect the seed for sowing next year.I'm waaaaaaaaay further south than you.I grow dianthus and it actually blooms better for the winters and survies freezes here but our freezes are brief....not monthS long.I know mexican hats can be winter sown.I'd not worry till temps were closer to freezeing.I cover some of my stuff with sheets at night in the winter.i just tuck them in& uncover mid morning...but thats not till December here.I have a gardening friend in Ontario.I think she digs her lasagna bed up to come in the garage in mid sept.I know shes gonna install some heating rods in the bed& expierment next year.

[wayey] HI Francine I agree with njoynit. I think your seedlings will be ok most flowers will tolerate temps down as low as 45 degrees long as theres no frost. before any damage will be done to them hope this helps.your friend in gardening.mike57 [wayey] [flower] [flower]
